Hoffses confirms Jeffers to BC

It has been rumored on BC message boards for weeks, but Wednesday Eric Hoffses and others confirmed that the Delaware's Maurice Jeffers will transfer to BC for his fifth year. The big man adds some frontline depth and experience to the team, but won't be a season changer. I just don't see him making a big leap from his Delaware productivity while at BC. What he does add is defense. Jeffers can block shots and hopefully protect the rim. Having a shot blocker should enable the wings and guards to be more aggressive on the perimeter.

Adding another 5th year means the team is still very unbalanced with an extreme mix of old and young. It is unlikely that BC will add any more basketball bodies before the season starts. I think this roster is better than last year's. Let's hope it comes together.

I think this is the kind of player that JC really values as he has gone after a similar skill set in each of the last 2 classes (Santos Silva this year and the kid who went to GW last year). A big body 4 who can grab rebounds. Jeffers isn't going to blow anyone away, but I get the impression that this is the type of player that JC can get a lot out of despite his limited skill set.

BC played Delaware last year (one of our few wins) - Jeffers had 4 rebounds and 4 fouls in 22 minutes. 0 for 3 from the field. i'm not expecting much from him or the team this year - is it possible they are worse than they were last year? sure seems like its in play.
